BE THE BEST
If you can't be a pine on the top of the hill,
Be a scrub in the valley — but be
The best little scrub by the side of the rill;
Be a bush if you can't be a tree.
We can't all be captains;
we've got to be crew.
There's something for all of us here;
There's big work to do,
and there's lesser to do.
And the task you must do is the near.
If you can't be a highway, then just be a trail;
If you can't be the sun, be a star:
It isn't by size that you win or you fail —
BE THE BEST OF WHATEVER YOU ARE!

AMERICA'S GREATEST ASSET
j\lary Eunice Kolile.
YOUTH'S GREATEST ASSET
FOR DEMOCRATIC LIVING
Mary Ethel Hurst
Mary Eunice Koliler
As the race for world supremacy feverishly continues, each nation counts
its assets — material wealth, natural resources, the stockpile of atomic weapons.
We shudder to think that guided missiles, capable of mass destruction, are
now ready. In the haste of nations to produce aircraft of supersonic speeds,
many have forgotten that that nation will remain supreme which utilizes its
most precious asset; that is, its youth.
In the early nineteenth century, Disraeli observed, "The youth of a nation
are the trustees of posterity." How true this is! Yet have freedom-loving
countries fully realized the significance of this statement? Possibly not to
the extent of the despotic or communistic powers. In our own century, we
have the example of Adolph Hitler, who said, "Let me train your youth, and
I will rule the nation in whatever way I choose." More recently we have only
to look at Russia, quietly carrying on the greatest youth conservation program
in her history.
It is the task of America to begin an equally magnificent effort to con-
serve and utilize her youth. Think of the millions of dollars Americans are
pouring into conservation projects, giant dams, and efficiency surveys of
business resources! Shouldn't there be at least a comparable amount set
aside for conservation of democracy's greatest asset? Does the lack of an
effective program indicate that Americans are unable or unwilling to think
in terms of long-range results? Here in America, most of the money allo-
cated to youth goes to the study and correction of juvenile delinquency.
Yet the results are not what they should be. In a recent statement, J.
Edgar Hoover warned that the United States crime rate has mushroomed
three times faster than the nation's population and that youngsters under
eighteen committed almost half the major crimes. Surely the time has come
when more drastic measures must be taken to prevent the future rise of such
a disgraceful condition. Thoughtful Americans will realize the urgent need
for immediate and wholehearted action. Whatever the cost, we must eradicate
juvenile delinquency. But at the same time we must not neglect an equally
strong program for developing the talent of the nation's youth. Perhaps, in
the end, the ounce of prevention will diminish the need for a pound of cure.
Since a democracy is a government of the people, it is the American citizen
himself who will have to see that the federal government, community, church,
and home successfully co-operate in a great program for the advancement of
One of the obligations of the federal government is to hold in check the
subversive agencies which try to poison young minds. Laws have been made
to protect the body against poison, but very few to protect the mind against
harmful comic books, motion pictures, television programs, and cheap adver-
It is the duty of the community to supply wholesome recreation in order
to rid young people of that excess physical energy which often leads to trou-
ble. Every citizen should consider it a personal obligation to see that his com-
munity has a centre, under the supervision of youth leaders, where all chil-
dren may freely go during their leisure time.
Every community must also see that the schools teach more than reading,
writing, and arithmetic. Now, as never before, a child must be taught to ap-
preciate the magnitude of his democratic heritage and be inspired to uphold
the traditions as set forth by our first great leaders. The public schools should
give as much help as possible to the superior child. Much has been done to
help the retarded boy and girl, but comparatively little for the exceptionally
skilled. Also scholarships of considerable amounts should be provided for
those in need, so that the talent of the naturally gifted can be given to the
The influence of the church can be great, since any country believing in
God and His principles will never fall under the influence of a dictatorship or
Communism. Despots have continually tried to extinguish religion because it
has always proved detrimental to totalitarian aspirations. By advocating regular
attendance, churches can help to promote the cause of democracy, for to
believe in God is to believe in what is right.
In the home a child must be taught the great values of love, respect, and
obedience, not only for their parents but also for all others. The impor-
tance of having faith in God and leading a life according to the Ten Com-
mandments must be emphasized. Juvenile delinquency usually stems from
trouble or neglect in the home. If, ho wever, one grows up with the attitude,
"I was made for happiness for God, for the fullness of his revelation
and all that is," he cannot help becoming a good and laudable person.
Americans must be impressed now with the urgent needs of the youth of
the nation. Each citizen must be made to see the absolute necessity for con-
serving the country's most precious asset. He must recognize that an in-
vestment in youth is an investment in the future, paying high dividends. For
given a firm foundation, American youth, with an ingenious nature and
faith in God, will stand unequalled in the world.
When the Founding Fathers framed our Constitution, their fundamental
aim was to establish a government, under God, in which the people would
be supreme. Each citizen would be given the opportunity of achieving his
greatest potential. He would have every possible freedom to develop his
own particular talent. In every way his God-given rights would be protected.
Truly the men who drafted the Constitution gave to us a magnificent docu-
ment. Yet how few of us really appreciate the privileges it guarantees us
At the time of the writing of the Constitution, men wanted equality of
opportunity more than anything else. They believed that each man's natural
rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness came to him from
God. The framers of the Constitution demonstrated their belief in this idea
by incorporating these truths in the final draft. Thus was proved that
the ideal of equality has always been a fundamental American principle.
From it have come all of our ideals of liberty, justice, peace and security.
Never in America will opportunity be restricted only to those of wealth or
racial prestige. Our democracy is indeed built on God-given principles.
That the ideal of equality as expressed by the Founding Fathers has had a
profound influence in our national life cannot be denied. For example, in
1913, labor was given its rightful place in the political scheme, when the
Secretary of Labor became a member of the President's Cabinet. In our great
nation, rich and poor, industrialist and laborer, financier and farmer, cast
their ballots side by side, giving evidence of a true democracy.
However, we realize that all do not have the same ability. Hence we do not
believe that all goods should be divided equally or that social distinctions
can be eliminated by government action. Some idealistic theories maintain that
a system such as Communism is possible. We cannot agree, because that
program deprives men of ambition and a competitive spirit. We believe
that true equality refers only to the natural rights of the individual and the
opportunity for their fulfilment. For example, if equality of opportunity
had not been granted to Ralph Bunche, the grandson of an American slave
and an orphan at the age of twelve, he never could have risen to the office
he now holds. His work as acting mediator of the United Nations Palestine
Commission is considered by many the most important and critical assign-
ment in the history of the United Nations. His story is only one of many
that could be mentioned. Indeed, our whole standard of living is a result
of this democratic pattern of life. Surely in this we have an answer to the
critics of democracy. For under what other form of government is the indi-
vidual given so many opportunities?
The development of a system of public education is perhaps America's
best illustration of the equality of opportunity in action. Here, every person
is allowed and encouraged to receive at least twelve years of free schooling.
A wide choice of subject matter is offered, and he is given a chance to learn
as much as he wishes. Furthermore, scholarships are available for the scien-
tist and teacher, the athlete and musician. Recently LIFE magazine told
the heartwarming story of the parents of a dozen children. Mr. and Mrs.
Louis Martin of Maryland had an income of less than $80 a week. Yet, by
hard work and scholarships, each of their children received a college degree.
Where but in America does such opportunity exist? Many argue that our
schools cater only to the average student, that no special arrangement is made
for the superior, as is true in Europe. We must admit that there are short-
comings in our present system; however, progress is being made continually
toward educating every individual in accordance with his desires and capa-
Many other developments have also come about as a result of our sense
of equality of opportunity and our educational program. Today ninety-five
per cent, of the government positions are open to anyone who qualifies by
passing Civil Service, while in the armed forces, many capable young men
who have never had the opportunity of attending a military school are now
eligible for officer training. Social Security further puts the American ideals
into action by retaining the dignity of her senior citizens. As we can see, many
areas where similar advantages did not exist are gradually being brought
under the general policy of equal opportunity for all.
Furthermore, America has taken steps to safeguard the individual rights
of liberty and equality, so that they may never be alienated. The decision of
the Supreme Court to curb the illegal proceedings of investigating commit-
tees is only one example of America's constant watch over her people.
Previously, the Sherman Anti-Trust Act was put into effect to protect the
small businessman against the large monopoly. The Wagner Act gave the
laborer a chance to bargain collectively with his employer, while the consumer
has been cared for by the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act.
Yet neither the Bill of Rights nor any other law can itself safeguard our
American principles. The tenets of democracy can be preserved only when
thoughtful and enlightened people act according to their beliefs. We, the
youth of today, the leaders of tomorrow, must be these people. We, who
have received all of our nation's richest blessings, must return to her
at least some portion of our talents. Let us thank America, this America
who has said to us, her youth, "Be the best of whatever you are." Let us
give her our best.
Mary Ethel Hurst
What a blessing it is to live in America! How wonderful to be a citizen
in a nation which believes in God as the source or all power and law! What a
privilege to participate in a democracy that gives each citizen equal rights
regardless of race, color, or creed. Yet what a grave responsibility this priv-
ilege, this blessing, places upon us; for America, in her present position
of world leadership, must prove to the world the beauty of democratic living.
She can do this only by setting a functioning example — an example so fine
and so successful that other nations will follow it voluntarily. The respon-
sibility for setting this example rests with us, the citizens of the United
States. So great is this responsibility that it can be met only by an enlight-
ened citizenry, capable of leading and of selecting wise leaders. Education,
the education of all of our people, is the sole hope toward this enlightenment.
During recent years much has been written concerning education in
America, giving evidence that we are most aware of its vital importance.
One reads articles on many diverse aspects of education: the need for em-
phasis upon science, the lack of ethical and spiritual values, and the impor-
tance of greater self-discipline. One hears arguments both in favor of and
opposed to various systems of instruction. It is so easy to become preoccupied
with techniques and secondary objectives that one loses sight of the primary
purpose of education in our democracy.
The primary purpose is to produce good citizens, just as our American
forbears resolved when they first established our free-education system.
These men of integrity realized that the security and freedom of our nation
depended upon the quality as well as the equality of the citizens. They knew
that our democratic system itself, to be successful, must develop character.
Knowing this, they began an educational system which they hoped would
enable all to uphold the highest ideals of our democracy. With the purpose
of producing good citizens, our educational system was founded; now, over
three hundred years later, our purpose remains the same. We still
realize that a good citizen is one who is prepared to live a happy, peaceful,
and useful life; one who is fitted to meet all physical, social, intellectual,
and spiritual needs.
One must first be prepared to cope with the physical needs of his life. He
must be able to earn a living so that he can provide for himself those neces-
sities and conveniences so essential to his physical comfort. He must also know
how to take care of his health so that he can remain strong and able. In one
scientific study fifty-eight per cent, of American youths failed one or more
of six tests for muscular strength and flexibility. The failure rate of Euro-
pean children in the same tests was only eight per cent. Statistics such as
these indicate that too few Americans are receiving proper health training.
Then, too, a good citizen must cultivate the art of social living. He must
possess self-control as well as self-reliance, enabling him to live and work
harmoniously as a member of his family and his community. He must be
aware of his responsibilities as a United States citizen and must be willing
to shoulder conscientiously his share of maintaining public law and order.
He must clearly see his duty to vote intelligently and take part in public
Likewise, it is necessary that a good citizen be educated intellectually.
He must not only possess considerable knowledge, but he must be trained
to use that knowledge well and encouraged to seek additional information.
He must be able to think clearly, to use good judgment, and to make deci-
sions. He must realize that without a highly developed science our nation
lacks the power to survive. Since we are at present engaged in an intense race
for scientific knowledge, our civilization, our very existence, is dependent
upon the continual quest for perfection in our scientific achievements.
In addition, he must also realize that modern science contains many new
ideas which must be regulated. Charles Lindbergh, in his latest book,
entitled "Of Flight and Life," states: "Scientific truth can bring evil as
well as good, destroy as well as construct; its achievements depend less on
its own substance than on a guiding Power beyond — a power not bound
up in formulas of knowledge.". If our civilization is to continue, we must
guide the material power of our science according to the spiritual truths
of our God.
Finally, a good citizen must be a person of highest character and ideals.
He must recognize the laws of nature as God's gift and place his faith in
God's purpose for human life. It has been said that the deeper one's spi-
ritual values, the richer his life becomes and the more he enriches the lives
of others. The good citizen is truly a person of deepest spiritual values.
The purpose of education, then, is to produce good citizens for demo-
cratic living. This can be accomplished only when all these aspects of
man's nature, physical, social, intellectual, and spiritual, are taken into
consideration. There must be an equal balance of body, mind, and spirit.
Our survival as a nation is wholly dependent upon the quality of our
civilization, our physical strength, the mind of science, and the balance of
the spirit of Christ. Education must accomplish this balance in our people,
for the future of our nation is dependent upon good citizens, enlightened
citizens, citizens of extraordinary quality.

what we did
In June of 1953, the freshman classes of South Junior and Weymouth High Schools went to College I'ond in Plymouth for their
outings. The sun shone brightly on both days ami most of us freshmen arrived home with reel hot sunburns.
The following year as sophmores at Weymouth High, the class went to College I'ond again for the annual outing. After a cloudy
morning. Mr. Sun linalh peeped through to put his mark on us.
As upperclassmen in the next year, we juniors held our party in the girls' gym. To the music ol Bobbie Doxies Orchestra, dancing
was held, followed by refreshments and entertainment.
\s .1 gift from the Class of 1955,
the Class of I !)."><> presented maroon
an<l gold rose bushes, which were
planted outside the entrance to
t lie boys' gym, drivewa)
side of the s< hool.
To give the Senior Class a big
send-ofl we, the Junior Class, pre-
sented a show, under the direction
of Mr. Ghiorse, entitled "I)a\e
Crockett Visits Weymouth High."
We tried to bring out the high-
ights ol the seniors' high school
days by reacting various events,
and impersonating different stu-
dents. We all knew the show was
a grand success when we saw the
tears in the eyes of the seniors as
they realized they were leaving

and \arsit\ sports. Here. Mary Hurst, Student Council presi-
dent, is presenting Meretc with an "Honorary Student Council

As we juniors left school for our outing one Sunday morning in June, it was raining: but when we reached Craigville Beach
in Plymouth, the weathei was line. The salt water was most refreshing aftei the long ride from Weymouth.
For the first football rally, Mr. Ghiorse again directed a show for us. This was called "The Jackie Gleason Show." The theme
was based on Jackie's driving the football team to the Thanksgiving game in Brockton. Here we saw the June Taylor Dancers
as portrayed by members of the footbal squad.
"I o celebrate Christ-
mas this year, a pageant
was held, under the
direction ol Mrs. Pileggi.
was comprised of five
tableaux representing the
lirth of the Christ Child.
On December 12, in
the boys' gym, the annu-
al Victory Dance u;:s
held, to the music ol Earl
Healev's Orchestra. A
ep resen tat ion of out-
standing football players
was placed on the edge
of the stage with a
goal post situated in the
centre of the dance floor
as a tribute to the suc-
cessful squad of 1958.
For the basketball rally the cheerleaders based the theme on the Micke) Mouse Club Show. Complete with the Mousekateers,
gnosis, and Weymouth's basketball squad, the show was most successful.
"The -Night of January Sixteenth," which was the title of the Senior l'lav. was presented in March. The alleged murderess,
played l>\ Jane Damon, was found innocent at both presentations. The cast, which was directed by Mr. Longridge, included, in order
of their appearance: Janice Margeson, Carl Leone, John Temple, Daniel Kelly, Doris Gumming, James Walker. Janet White. Richard
Rand. Jane Damon, Alan Walls, Hannah Burgess, John Lingley, Charles Sholes, Marjorie N'ash, Barbara Dunlap, Paul Craffev,
Valorie Wilson, Paula Fryar, John Faustini, Barbara Chambers, Beverley Greenblatt, John Burgess, Donald MacLeod, Joseph
Carven, and Rose Creswell.
The Senior Parts was held in January in the girls' gym. All looked wonderful as they danced. Even the teachers were dancing as
the orchestra leader announced a "good-will dance." During the entertainment a group ol seniors sang "This Is the Year," to the
tune of "Now Is The Hour." Several little parties were held afterward to climax a wonderful evening.
The Student Council, in addition to their duties in the lunch room
and at the fire drills, have sponsored many dances, to raise funds
for various school organizations. Members of the Council also
attended the annual conventions which were held this year at
Cohasset, Melrose, Wilmington, Silver Lake, and Connecticut.
Offices of the Council were Mary Hurst, president; Richard Daniele,
vice-president; Janet White, secretary, and Arthur Horsch, treas-
We wish to thank the Reflector Staff, Editor-in-Chief Laverna Somers,
and the faculty advisers for working so diligently in selecting the
best material for each edition of the school magazine. Diana Dries-
bach, the Art Editor, and Virginia Hegarty, Business Manager, are
also to be commended for their excellent work.
We are sure the students enjoyed reading stories written by their
classmates and hearing about current activities of the high school.
During the past year the Yearbook Staff, with Mary Hoyle as Editor-
in-Chief; Joan Jacobson, Art Editor; Virginia Hegarty, Business
Editor, and Michael Austin, Photography Editor, worked hard with
hopes of producing a book which would arouse the interest of the
The staff would like to thank the members of the faculty who helped
in choosing material for our book and spent much time working with
Weymouth High's football squad enjoyed a successful season. Under
the able leadership of co-captains John Burgess and Joe Rossetti, our
team was sparked to greater heights. Best wishes are extended to
Coach John Fisher and Assistant Coaches Hayes, Whitmore, and
Mazzola for a successful 1956 season. The following players are
graduating: John Burgess, Joe Carven, Dave Cassetti, Russ Delano,
Harry Dellamano, Bob Fay, Don McLeod, Ed Mullen, Ed O'Don-
nell, Larry Pawlick, Joe Rossetti, and Paul Simmons.
The shouts and cheers of joy heard echoing from Legion Field and
the boys' gym were led by our loyal cheerleaders. The members of
the squad were: W — Bobbie Vedoe, E — Mary Kohler, Y — Jane
Foster, M — Bea DuPrey, O — Mary Hurst, U — Bev Stevens, T —
Judy Pitts, H — Barbie Brittain, and of course, our head cheerleader,
Doris Swart. Much help was rendered by the substitutes Connie San-
tacroce, Lanie Lewis, Sandy McCusker, and Levy Somers at the vari-
ous times during the year. All the girls are to be congratulated.
At every football game last fall the fans never failed to see our ma-
jorettes full of "pep" as they led the band down the field. Under the
capable leadership of Ann Vaughan, these girls added much to the
band as they performed their many routines. The remaining squad
consist of Louise Messier, Nancy Keefe, Ida Nelson, Cynthia Payne,
and Joanie Truman.
If you were at the football games last fall, I'm sure you enjoyed lis-
tening to various selections played by our Band, and in various as-
semblies also. The officers of the organization this year were Jim
Walker, president; Nancy Trudeau, vice-president, and Carl Leone,
We want to thank the members for a job well done and wish Mr.
Stewart luck in his new venture.
The members of the Orchestra spent many hours working together,
under the direction of Mr. Jack, preparing for their appearances in
the annual school concerts. The highlight of the year's activities was
the "Hey Pedro" number at the Winter Concert.
We have enjoyed the performances of the Chorus, directed by Mr.
Jack, in our school assemblies, concerts, and festivals throughout the
year. Everyone wishes to thank the members for their grand work.
Our basketball team, composed mainly of underclassmen, did not
have a very successful season, winning only five games. However, fine
sportsmanship and team spirit were present at all times. Coach Dick
Whitmore bids farewell to the two senior starters, John Burgess and
Joe Carven. In the Bay State Tournament the Weymouth five ad-
vanced to the finals, but were defeated by a strong Worcester Trade
Under the able leadership of Mr. Page and Mr. Pratt, our track
teams have enjoyed successful seasons. During the winter season
the team placed in the annual State Meet and B. A. A. held in Boston
Garden. Seniors leaving the squad are Joe Carven, Bob Fay, Dave
Finlayson, Joe Rossetti, Jerry Rudolph, and Dan Sexton.
The Weymouth Cross Country Team, led by senior co-captains Dave
Finlayson and Dan Sexton, won five of its six meets this year, and
placed second in the South Shore Meet. The team's two coaches are
to be congratulated for spending many hours in the training of these
Our baseball team, with Coach John Fisher in charge, enjoyed a
most successful season. The Weymouth nine displayed much sports-
manship and team spirit on the diamond. Graduating are John
Burgess, Marty Cunningham, John Cross, Bill Peters, Joe Rossetti,
Bennie Santacroce, Skip Sholes, and Pete Temple.
H& r^, f * -v*» ^ v.- 1 ^"
This year at Weymouth High a new sport was established. Our
hockey team, piloted by Coach Art Valicenti and Co-captains Paul
Simmons and Russ Delano, showed a great deal of promise, a fact
which evidences a much stronger team in the coming year.
When the warmer weather arrives, we find the girls out on Libby
Field playing softball. which seems to be popular with many of the
Miss Arnold and Miss Sharkey are always on hand, coaching the
girls and promoting true sportsmanship.
Early last fall a large group of girls spent their afternoons at Libby
Field playing field hockey. Each team played its best in hopes of
coming out on top.
If you heard a lot of shouting coming from the girls' gym this year, it
was the basketball tournament. The winners of these intramural games
comprised the varsity and junior-varsity squads. Weymouth's girls
played the annual exciting game with Woodward School, beating
them 55 — 22.
The volleyball tournament was an exciting one this season. The
girls found keen competition in every game. They learned to
acquire skill and enjoyed playing, also.
The past year the tennis court at Legion Field saw a great deal of
action. Many of the girls took an interest in the sport and had fun
playing the game.
This spring, on Monday afternoons, an exciting badminton tourna-
ment was held in the girls' gym. A large number of girls turned out,
and each one enjoyed herself.
A great interest was shown by the student body when plans for form-
ing a Dramatic Club were drawn up. The elected officers were John
Temple, president; Beverly Barton, vice-president; Marilyn Nelson,
secretary, and Doris Cumming, treasurer.
The club presented a number of short plays; however, the outstand-
ing production of the club was the Senior Play.
The members wish to thank Mr. Longridge for making the first year
of the Dramatic Club a successful one.
Jane Damon, James Haviland, James Walker, and Mary Hurst,
were the four finalists who represented the High School in this
year's Oratorical Contest, sponsored by the American Le gion. All
the students worked diligently on their speeches and each gave a
fine presentation. Mary Hurst was chosen the winner of the contest
and awarded fifty dollars. James Haviland was the runner-up.
This year pupils taking French reorganized the French Club, under
the supervision of Miss Canning. The meetings were all interesting,
particularly the Christmas Party. The officers of the club were Janet
Briggs, president; Merete E. Selmer, vice-president; Judy Pitts, sec-
retary, and Edna Green, treasurer.
We hope that next year's students will show the same interest and
This past year the Spanish Club held meetings once a month, with
Mrs. Bedell and Miss Waterman as faculty advisers and officers:
Marie Maraget, president; Lois Savola, vice-president; Beverly
Moran, secretary, and Judy Fortier, treasurer.
The girls enjoyed hearing different speakers and viewing slides of
Spanish-speaking countries. The annual Christmas Party was held
with the French Club in the Library.
The purpose of the Future Nurses' Club is to bring together all the
girls interested in nursing.
Led by Carol Bernard, president, and Miss Stockwell, faculty adviser,
the Future Nurses' Club visited hospitals and discussed various sub-
jects at their meetings, helping the members to dertermine if they
would enjoy a career in nursing.
The Key Club, which is a branch of the Weymouth Kiwanis, per-
forms many helpful public works. It sponsored a safety campaign
this winter, placing signs about town to slow down the drivers. At
graduation a scholarship was awarded to a senior who showed ex-
cellence in both studies and extracurricular activities. This year's fac-
ulty adviser, Mr. Lordi, and club president, Dan Kelly, aided the
boys in their endeavors.
The Camera Club is another club that began this year. With Michael
Austin as president and Miss Toomey and Mr. DiSessa as faculty
advisers, the members sponsored a photo contest. Many interesting
meetings were held, with various speakers and different forms of
entertainment being given.
The Library Club, under the direction of Miss Gloster, has many
hard-working members. Whenever you go to the library, someone
is always there to help you. The girls spend much of their own time
keeping the library in order, and enjoy doing it. The club will
welcome any pupils that would like to join.
Our Lab Assistants aid the science teachers in keeping the labora-
tories in good order. A great deal of confusion is eliminated each year
by these people, who are well acquainted with physics and chemistry.
Our Audio- Visual Aids Club has proved itself indispensable through
the past years, under the able direction of Mr. White, the faculty
adviser, and Edward Fasci, the president. Many educational films
were shown in the various classrooms by the club members.
The Print Shop, where boys learn to use linotype machines, presses,
et cetera, is a centre of activity all the year; for it is here that our
yearbook and tickets for all school activities are printed. With the
experience gained in the shop, the boys have little difficulty finding
PRINT SHOP employment in this field.
In the Cabinetmaking Shop boys are taught to construct furniture
of many different styles. Here they gain invaluable knowledge and
experience which will help them to obtain positions in the leading
cabinetmaking shops all over the country.
The Automobile Shop provides Weymouth with future mechanics.
In this shop, the boys learn all the phases of automobile up-keep and
repair. Because of the painstaking work done by the boys of this
shop, many teachers and townfolk bring th eir cars here for repairs.
Each year, in order to give the boys a more thorough knowledge of
their trade, the Carpentry Shop assumes the project of the complete
building of a house. This training and experience enable them to
get started more easily in their trade.
This past year the three major projects of the Sheet Metal Depart-
ment were the installation of a heating system at the house being built
by the pupils of the carpentry course, the construction of a dust-col-
lecting system for the shops at South Junior High, and the fitting
of the dog pound with a metal interior. With this training, the boys
will be able to step into fine jobs in sheet-metal work.
Another outstanding course at Weymouth High School is offered
by the Agricultural Department. The boys in this course, numbering
about forty, have three extremely competent instructors: Mr. Hilmer
S. Nelson, Mr. Harold Nelson, and Miss Marie Ghiorse. Each week
the juniors and seniors go to Waipole, to the Norfolk County Ag-
ricultural School, of which the Weymouth Department is a branch,
where they gain experience in working with plants and livestock.
Dear Path er in Heaven, we come before Thee,
a group of young people, standing on the threshold
of life. So we pray Thee to direct our paths and to
show us that prayer is the key to Heaven; but faith
unlocks the door.
We have many plans, all varied, but we know that
without Thee our planning is futile, and apart from
Thee there can be no lasting happiness or success.
We know, too, that prayer is not for the purpose of
changing things; but of changing us. Therefore we
ask that we may be changed into Thy likeness and
take Thee with us each day.
As we have come to the close of our school days
at Weymouth High and travel the road of remem-
brance, may we find no room in our hearts for bitter-
ness or misunderstanding.
As we separate, one from the other, may there be
no separation from Thee.
Bless us, O Lord, and make us a blessing to
others. These things we ask in Thy blessed name.
with the help of Rod
we shall be the best of whatever we are
